NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Candy Crush Saga® announced its latest seriously sweet collaboration with iconic fashion designer, Christian Cowan, to unveil the accessory of the season: a line of attachable pockets which aim to solve the no pocket, fake pocket… or micro pocket conundrum.
Inspired by the coveted candies and the colorful Candy Kingdom, the pockets are purposely oversized with the ability to be fixed onto any garment with pins, making them an obvious stylistic addition to any outfit. Enhancing silhouettes with sweet fashion flare, the pockets make it easy to keep your phone close and easily accessible for on-the-go-crushin’.
“For decades, pockets have been notoriously ignored by designers and excluded from women’s clothing, but fashion today begs for them,” said Christian Cowan. “It’s no secret that my collections are typically out of the ordinary, but alongside the Candy Crush team I was jazzed to make something that was both camp and practical, that takes an otherwise ordinary outfit and makes it something elevated.”
Cowan’s SS ’24 collection, will feature three pockets, each donning its own beloved Candy color and shape that can be paired with any outfit, on any garment and attached like a brooch. The closet must-haves will complement the looks of the designer’s largest collection and first Paris Fashion Week debut:
- Denim Crush: Inspired by the blue candy in Candy Crush, you can dress this pocket up or pair it down! Fancy and casual! Denim Crush is the easiest of them all.
- Sugar Tuille: Inspired by the pink & white path and hues of the Candy Kingdom, and pulled straight from the runway, this pink pocket is the must-have of the season. French tweed and sparkle – what more could you want?
- Unnamed: Is there anything chicer than having no name? This pocket is inspired by the iconic purple candy and gives tweed & mystery. Head to Candy Crush socials to give this pocket a name.
“Our goal at Candy Crush Saga is, and always has been, to bring joy to our players’ lives through both unique in-game adventures and tangible real-life moments. Partnering with Christian (again!) has given us the opportunity to provide our fans with a way to express their love for the game, in style,” said Luken Aragon, VP Marketing, Candy Crush Saga. “We have now dreamed up two creations with Cowan that bring fun, function and convenience to the everyday, while facilitating Candy Crush game play on-the-go.”
This renewed collaboration comes on the heels of the wearable Sweet Seat, Christian Cowan and Candy Crush Saga’s first product which left fans craving more. The limited-edition pockets will be available for purchase on christiancowan.com starting today for $99 / £80.
